Platinum was found to be the electrode of choice for both electrochlorination and bromination of succinimide leading to the formation of N chloro succinimide (NCS) and N bromo succinimide (NBS) respectively. Because of the competitive processes 150% and 285% of theoretical charge has to be passed for bromination and chlorination respectively. 12% (w!v) of succinimide could be used for bromination while only 2% (w!v) of this reactant is optimum for chlorination. Optimum conditions have been evaluated for the process. A maximum yield of 55% and 88% could be achieved for bromination and chlorination of succinimide respectively.
